Bushbuckridge muni employees missing money on pay checks


Bushbuckridge Municipality employees are up in arms as an unexplained deduction of R2000 was noticed on their monthly pay checks. According to Jerry Baloyi, chairperson of the Bushbuckridge South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu), it could be because of a strike they held but at the same time said they still do not have answers.


It was an unauthorised strike but Baloyi maintains that a meeting between  employees and management was held to address this issue with only those on strike having money deducted. Bushbuckridge Local Municipality Mayor Sylvia Nxumalo said that there was a council resolution about the ‘no work no pay’ rule.
